The Ends of the Humanities
Main Editors: Till Dembeck, Georg Mein, Johannes Pause, Christoph Purschke
The series The Ends of the Humanities seeks to underline the various ways in which the humanities engage with the future and inform ongoing cultural processes; at the same time, it acknowledges that to ensure their survival, the humanities must reach beyond established traditions in teaching and research. More specifically, it aims to examine how individual fields position themselves in relation to different social issues in the humanities – and which areas need to be developed further. Contributions will investigate the relationship between the humanities on the one hand, and ethics, cultural and social politics, the education system, the law, the economy, new technologies and other sciences, on the other.
The Luxemburger Musikerlexikon is an encyclopedia of another kind. Not only does it provide detailed information about Luxembourg composers and performers, but it also contains quotations from contemporaries or descendants and pictorial material. The first volume contains articles about musicians who were active in Luxembourg and covers the period between 1815 and 1950. In 1815 the Luxembourg State was recognised by the Congress of Vienna as a sovereign nation and thus gained its independance. 1950 stands for a break or a new beginning in the first post-war years after the Second World War. The birth cohorts of the musicians cover a period from 1773 to 1914. The musicians who were born after 1914 are presented in the second volume of the Musicians' Encyclopedia.
